Gigabit Society Plans in Europe

Gigabit Society Plans in Europe

20 November

2:15 pm - 3:30 pm

Maison de la Mutualité

In Europe as a whole, and in France in particular, the pace of ultrafast network rollouts has accelerated over the past 18 months. Tremendous strides are being made towards achieving the ambitious Gigabit Society targets defined by the European Union, and by the France THD superfast rollout scheme published in 2013. So where are we now? Are we seeing a shift in major European players’ technological choices? How do players see the industry’s strengths and weaknesses when it comes to creating an infrastructure that will be the backbone of our society’s digital transition?
